We had a very disappointing visit to The Pheasant as we waited over an hour for two starters. We watched others who arrived after us being served starters and then their mains! On arrival we were not greeted and our feeling was that we were perhaps second class dinner guests to the residents who seemed to have no problem being... More

On a trip with 3 friends who raved about this place. Visited it earlier in the week for a couple of beers and reserved a table for dinner from a lovely female member of staff. Arrived early this evening and the young lady was there to welcome us and even remembered the conversation we'd had several days before. Lovely food.... More

Stopped here for a lunch break between walking Sale Fell and Ling Fell. Great pub with loads of old character but still loads of class. We are in the bistro and had scotch egg and fish and chips. I can categorically state that the fish and chips were the best we ever had. Our only complaint were the flies. Would... More

We had a wonderful meal to celebrate my husband's 60th. The staff were attentive and helpful and the food was absolutely delicious. I had the duck and it was perfectly cooked and the poached pear and sour cherry granola were excellent accompaniments. I'm told that the lamb and steak were lovely too. I also enjoyed the soufflé.

I wish to thank the lady who served my uncle and his wife when they called in for morning coffee last week. My Uncle Norman who now lives in Devon, called into The Pheasant whilst on a recent visit to "The Lakes". He mentioned to the lady who served him that he has been a regular visitor of The Pheasant...

We stayed in a dog friendly garden room. It was really good to have a garden for them to run around on. Breakfast was good and food in the bistro was nice. Stayed for two nights and had two meals there.

I really wanted to go to this restaurant as I had read some glowing reports and friends had recommended it. I found the menu choice poor and ordinary; the wine indifferent and expensive and the food over- priced and of inferior quality. We were so disappointed by the choice on the menu that we had been tempted to leave without... More

We really enjoyed this traditional old pub. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food way above average, the beer great, and the location very pleasant. We ate in the garden. The bar area could quickly get crowded, it's rather small. Would definitely return!

We had a pleasant lunch on a warm sunny day and ate in the garden. We ordered sandwiches which were tasty but overpriced for what they were. Staff were a little aloof and there was a slight air of arrogance about the place. The children loved exploring the beautiful gardens but would not describe it as a child friendly place.... More
